( cheers and applause ) that's crazy. how are you not the counterweight? >> let me give you a classic example of what fair and balanced means to me. after hurricane katrina, the mainstream media piled on fema for its failure to respond to the crisis. and the federal government did a lousy job. but it was fox news that started reporting on the failure of the first responders, the city of new orleans and the state of louisiana to help people. yes, we reported fema's problems but we also told the other side of the story. >> jon: that's your example? you had a week to prepare an example and you came up with in 2005 everyone was (beep) on the republicans and we made sure they understood that local louisiana democrats (beep) too. i mean, just out of curiosity in your week of digging for that

struggling. on top of the eurozone is a big market for u.s. multinational firms. so, it's no wonder that economist bruce kasman says it's really bad timing for a rate hike in europe. >> the euro area as a region delivers less in terms of growth as it could in helping the global economy, and then finally it adds risks and vulnerabilities to the really tough adjustments going on in greece and other peripheral countries right now. to be sure, a quarter of a percentage point increase in european rates tomorrow is likely to have only a nominal effect on u.s. growth. the concern is that the european central bank will proceed down a path of tighter monetary policy. >> the step that will be taken tomorrow by itself is not that big a deal, but the signal, if it gets realized in terms of further movements over the next six to 12 months, could have an impact in making it a little harder for the u.s. to get growth than it otherwise would. >> reporter: the good news is that buyers of u.s. stocks don't appear to be troubled by higher interest rates in other areas of the world. equity strategist a
reform. it is quite a big undertaking considering there isn't a lot of time left but certainly some movement that we have seen since yesterday, guy. >> any specifics? i think important people who are listening to the process of what's happening in washington, what this means for people over a longer period of time is fewer services and smaller government and maybe higher taxes or higher cost of living your life as the services go away. i mean, all of these have amazing and long lasting ramifications for how we live our lives. my specifics? >> huge long -- no. honestly in terms of the specific, i mean, we can talk generally about where the cuts would come from, entitlements, defense spending, you can see how that would affect different people and the nation as a whole. specifics, no, i think we are going to be getting, obviously, more details on that to come. let's just take a look at some of the things that some of the folks who are coming here to the white house are going to demand because, remember, president obama is hosting eight members of congress, top two democrats and top tw
. they are convincing one another that it is not that big after deal. so right now the white house's big hope and i don't think it is misplace said that if we go to do doom's days on this, the hope is people that get blamed will be the republicans. >> that's option 2. that's default. i've given you two options. >> it's not default if we don't stop sending out the checks. if we keep sending out the checks, it's not default. we didn't default in '95. we just got near to it. >> does the president then say, okay, i'll agree to the republican plan? what's the third option besides default and defeat? how does he force his point of view, which is a reasonable balance, two or three to one, spending cuts to revenue hikes. >> i have no idea. i should say they're talking four or five to one. >> how do we get to there then? >> he can't. on his own we simply cannot. we live in a country, the constitution, the constitution has ultimate power. a lot of people think he could ignore them by asserting constitutional authority, but that is really dependent on the supreme court. >> am i right that it depends on one man, j

to comment until you see some specifics. i think that the bottom line is in terms of an overall deal, the big holdup here is the fact that republicans have kept revenues off the table completely, even eric cantor yesterday, people said well, it's a great thing he says maybe he'll do a few of these egregious loopholes in the law, corporate jets and yachts and stuff like this, but even there, he had another loophole put in the law and none of the money that would be -- that comes from closing these loopholes would be used to reduce the deficit. so it's one step forward, two steps back. if republicans are willing to entertain serious revenues, there's a real chance for a big deal. if they're not, there's no chance for a big deal and i can tell you this. democrats are not going to go for something that says we have all these cuts that we'll put in the budget now and maybe we'll get revenues down the road, the ways and means committee or the finance committee will decide those down the road. leader reid issued a statement that i think sums up our view, that there has to be balance between cuts and
